We spend so much time sitting down in chairs—in the living room, dining room and
at the desk. So wouldn't it be nice to have a simple multi-purpose chair that paid you back with a little back scratch? Thanks to an under-seat touchpad and "fingernails," Dana Gordon's chair does.
This seemingly normal Itch Chair from designer Dana Gordon
is actually outfitted with a plethora of science-y named attachments that all serve on purpose: Giving you the perfect back scratch while you sit tight.
The "itch-calming mechanism" attached to the back of the chair is "equipped with a broad selection of 'fingernails'" and controlled by a touchpad under the seat. The user's fingertips control the position of the "scratching actuator" and its intensity.
We won't pass any judgment until we get the chance to sit in this living-room back-scratch-simulator, but we're proponents of the "the only person that can really scratch your back is you" movement.
